Excellent Attorney - Don
I was unfortunate to get a ticket, but I was fortunate to discover Scott. He was kind, understanding & represented me far beyond my capability. His experience as a former police officer, prosecutor, & now defense attorney was a real asset. He was able to negotiate a reduced fine & charges from the original ticket I was issued. I highly recommend him if you get a traffic ticket!
The most professional, knowledgeable man for the job. This guy is for real - David
I have worked with several different lawyers in the past. I only wish I had hired Scott for all my cases. Scott has expertise and experience in every aspect of the law process, from arrests to prosecution to now defending the public. His knowledge of the law, investigations and attention to detail is incomparable. Scott was very eager to do as much as possible to get the charges completely dropped. Scott's integrity and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty is unparalleled. I cannot pay this man back for the expertise, hope and encouragement he provided during my trials. I can only refer him in hopes of beginning the process.
Scott went out of his way to help me in 2007 with a traffic ticket issue. I never thought of seeking the assistance of an attorney for a traffic ticket, but I am so glad I did. Scott walked me through the process and I was able to keep the infraction off my record, helping me keep my insurance rates low. Fantastic.

From Scott Terry
Endorsement: I have defended several cases over the years where Scott was the prosecutor on the other side. He quickly earned my respect. When I had him on a case, I knew from experience I would be dealing with a person who was intelligent, competent and fair. I have no doubts that anyone who is represented by Scott will be in very good hands.

From Amy Muth
Endorsement: I represented several clients whom Scott prosecuted for serious sexual misconduct. Scott was always extremely pleasant and professional to work with. I opposed him in a hotly-contested sexual misconduct trial, and he was thorough, well-prepared, and communicated well with the jury--and unfailingly courteous to me throughout the process.
